“Straight Bourbon is a visual parade celebrating the intricate convergence of technology and nature—the intersection of copper, grain, fire, water, and wood from which bourbon emerges. Peachee’s elegant photographs reveal the unexpected beauty in the art and science of whiskey making. Bourbon lovers will surely savor this book every bit as much as their favorite glasses of amber elixir.”
— Susan Reigler, author of The Bourbon Tasting Notebook
“Carol Peachee’s photography highlights the art, the science, and the beauty of bourbon. This book is a fitting follow-up to her first book and is an instant classic. Every bourbon enthusiast should own a copy of Straight Bourbon.”
— Albert W. A. Schmid, author of The Kentucky Bourbon Cookbook and Burgoo, Barbecue & Bourbon
“Carol Peachee has done a magnificent job of capturing the places and processes that most whiskey lovers never see, but need to understand in order to have a true appreciation for the labor of love that goes into every drop of bourbon.”
— Bill Samuels Jr., Chairman Emeritus, Maker’s Mark Distillery, Inc.
